Home » Sports » Bosso Defender At Triangle

FORMER Highlanders defender Dumisani Ndlovu could be on his way out of the Bulawayo giants as he has been linked with a move to Triangle where he is set to reunite with former coach Kelvin Kaindu.

Triangle are looking to beef-up their squad for the new season as they seek to turnaround their fortunes after revamping their technical set up which now has the Zambian coach at the helm.

Sources at Triangle yesterday said Ndlovu is among players who are set to be unveiled by the club this week ahead of Friday’s preliminary deadline set by the Premier Soccer League.

Ndlovu worked with Kaindu at Highlanders where the centre-back managed to establish himself after getting the confidence of the coach.

It appears Kaindu has been particularly concerned about beefing up his defence as he has also brought in the former ZPC Kariba duo of Peter Muzondo and Ephraim Mwinga.

The Lowveld side is also understood to have enlisted the services of Zambian forward Anthony Sakala, who has been training with them since they began pre-season preparation last month.

Triangle chairman Charles Muchatukwa refused to discuss their new signings yesterday and said they are looking to unveil their full squad today when they expect to have finalised all the paperwork.

“We have a couple of new players that we intend to take on board and a couple of youngsters that we also seek to promote from our structures. I cannot talk about any particular player joining us at the moment but by tomorrow (today) we should have a full complement of the squad. Thereafter we will make an official announcement,” said Muchatukwa.

Despite having a balanced squad, which won the NetOne One Wallet Cup at the expense of league champions Dynamos last year, Triangle had a porous defence which almost cost them their place in the Premiership this season.

The Lowveld side had to survive relegation late following the arrival of Kaindu. The new coach should have been worried about their defensive record. They had the fifth worst defensive record last year in contrast to their scoring abilities. Triangle scored more goals compared to FC Platinum who finished third in the championship race.

“We have almost completed our squad for 2015. We should be done by Monday (today).

Of course there could be three or four players coming in, but we haven’t made many changes to the squad that we had last year,” said Kaindu.

“Our first target is to be competitive and ensure that we don’t get relegated.

“I believe, just like any of the 16 teams, we also want to fight for everything that will be on offer.

“We started training during the second week of January and we have been progressing well. Fitness levels are coming up, but we are not yet in the condition to play warm-up games,” he said.
